Nicely done. I wonder how you made the 'get invisible' scene?! That really impressed me.

Wow, nicely done! Great job using the "invisibility cloak". The only thing I might recommend is for that shot when he pulls the invisibility cloak out of the backpack, is mabe have a close-up shot of him pulling it out, then go to the larger shot. Also the fall could have been done a little better, but that's minor. Great job!

I agree the cloak was nicely done but the fall wasn't. Another thing is to me the grading seemed over done.
Nice job though wink.

And you shouldn't really rate your own movie, but that's your choice.

I don't think that Magic Boy was an appropriate title it seemed more like Harry Potter or Frodo Baggins.

It needed some explanations like, who the guy with the knife is, why he is chasing Magic Boy and where Magic Boy got his magic cape.

The Invisibility effects where very good and I didn't see it coming.

Overall: Very Good

I would have to agree with Thrawn, that composite lab was used because it seems to be the only fx product that Rody has registered on his profile. So far, so good. Thumbs up!

The grading was over the top a bit. A good idea is to color you clip, and then to use contrast pro to rase the black point. This way your blacks stay black.

The disappearing scene was really cool! Good job!

Do you have an idea of when you're going to put your movie on fxhome (if you are gonna put if here at all)?

It will be sometimes this year. I would put it up erlier, but I realize that it should be good, so I'll put more time on it. By the way, do u have any tips on making a flying carpet look realistic?

I say practical. Like I just want magic boy on a flying carpet. i already have the carpet, i was thinking of using green screen, but I just would like to make it realistic and like it's really moving. so if u could give me some tips on how to do that, that'd be great. If green screen is not the best way, feel free inform of some others.
